This was more of an art piece than a functional cocker. I believe it's called the "skeletal cocker". As far as I know it is the ultimate wall hanger...never aired up. It can in theory hold air and work, but the owner is unwilling to try it. It's hundreds of hours with tools to achieve that much missing metal...conceivably worth thousands just in machining time. I do not remember which custom shop produced this...but is one of one without a doubt.

I thought it was called "mad cocker disease". I could be wrong.
The stuff I've seen that's been done by Triggernomics has always made my jaw drop.

He also did a conversion on a PTP micrococker. That one had most of it's air passages a bit more intact, and would probably work fine.

Yes, that is indeed "Mad Cocker Disease." The creator never aired it up due to the risk of blowing it up. It will work in theory, but anyone willing to run air into it has balls of steel. He did all the work with a dremel and other tools, and the odds of anyone here getting it is like me running away with the Mona Lisa...
